Early this week I posted a video of Michelle Obama speaking about healthcare. This is a touchy subject, I guess...with a lot of misinformation and disagreement. I'm leaning toward the passage of the bill...and I also think a public option is a good idea (after all, my mother is on Medicare - that's government funded, and it works).
But, I don't have all the answers. I also get it when some people voice opinions against a public option. So, I trust you will all make an educated choice. With that in mind, here's a follow-up video where Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, directly responds to health care issues, including the cost of care and medications (medication is a concern of mine) and the whole "pre-existing conditions" problem (another concern of mine). See video below.
I was offered this video from our women friends at iVillage where their press release quoted Jodi Kahn, Executive VP of iVillage, saying, "Health care is clearly top-of-mind for the women of iVillage, and that was reflected in the outpouring of thoughtful, substantive questions from them."
Share your questions and concerns here, also. I will pass them along to the folks at iVillage, and we can be confident they will reach the right ears. Thank you. (FYI: Mary was feeling under the weather today - she will be back with her usual great writing next Friday)
